Facebook (FB) unveiled Home last week, an Android software suite that transforms a handset’s home screen into a real-time graphical representation of users’ Facebook timelines. The new software has seen mixed early responses from pundits and bloggers, many of whom have expressed concerns over how Home might impact users’ privacy. Privacy concerns surrounding Facebook products are nothing new — concerns are justified, of course— and Facebook had a response to users’ worries ready to go. In a nutshell, Facebook says Home “doesn’t change anything related to your privacy settings on Facebook, and your privacy controls work the same with Home as they do everywhere else on Facebook.” Facebook’s full privacy Q&A can be found by following the source link below.
